16 Real Places That Look Like They’re From the Future #SciFiSunday
Fun list from Atlas Obscura. How many of these futuristic places have you visited?
Hollywood spends countless milliions designing fictional futuristic settings, but all over the world there are absolutely real places that seem to have already transcended our times, no special effects needed. These seemingly science fiction-inspired spots have embraced the possibilities of the future to make the present a far more out-there experience than many of us fully appreciate. We recently asked Atlas Obscura readers in our Community forums to tell us about the most sci-fi-esque places they’ve ever encountered, and the responses were light years ahead of our expectations.
